The interNational Association of Lighting Management Companies (NALMCO), Rosslyn, Va., has launched a new lighting controls certification, based on a curriculum developed by the Lighting Controls Association (LCA). The Certified Lighting Controls Professional (CLCP) was introduced at the NALMCO’s annual conference in Dallas last month.
Recognizing that the lighting industry is undergoing massive change due to growing demand for intelligent LED lighting systems and controls, NALMCO said the electrical industry has responded with a series of initiatives, but to date, there has been no national certification signifying a high level of general expertise in lighting controls technology, application, design and commissioning. This has been creating an education gap among service providers unfamiliar with aspects of the technology, NALMCO said.
The CLCP is based on 60 hours of the education curriculum developed by the Lighting Controls Association’s Education Express online education system. Certification is available to anyone in the industry.
